Citizenship ceremonies

If you are an adult and have been granted UK citizenship, you attend a citizenship ceremony.

You'll be granted UK citizenship after swearing either the Oath or Affirmation of Allegiance and taking the Citizenship Pledge.

Invitation to a ceremony

You will receive a letter from the Home Office asking you to call to attend a ceremony.

Call us on 01202 633744 to book your place.

Our opening times are:

  • Monday to Thursday: 9am to 4.30pm
  • Friday: 9am to 4pm.

We hold ceremonies on the last working Monday of every month.

You must have your ceremony within 3 months of receiving your letter.

Ceremonies are held at the Poole Register Office.

We can arrange a private citizenship ceremony for a fee of £165, Monday to Friday, depending on availability.
